Abstract

High rates of TB amongst new arrivals to the UK require flexible, innovative responses that go beyond traditional biomedical models and take into account the needs of these heterogeneous groups. This article explores the merging of public health and human rights based approaches to TB control in response to the challenge of increasing rates of TB amongst new arrivals in the UK.
